Acne board


I'm currently taking Dynacin for my acne, twice a day. I'm a college student, and I was just wondering whether drinking alcohol would decrease the effectiveness of the pills?
Also, when my acne goes away, only the bump reduces, but the redness stays. I was wondering if there was anything I could apply to reduce the red marks? Thanks.

Sorry, I am not sure about the affect that alcohol has on Dynacin. As far as the red marks go, don't always assume you need to use a product to help reduce the marks. I did this for 2 years or so, and every product I tried only made the redmarks WORSE. I still have some old, fading marks that were caused from different products (BP, AHA, BHA, etc). Now if I get a pimple, I just leave it alone, and my skin takes care of itself. I wish I had known this a few years ago :(
